Semester; 5 Units

Elective; Satisfies one semester of the Theology graduation requirement

Course Description:

This semester long elective course is dedicated to the service of the OLP school community by providing up to five students per semester who have already completed Liturgical Planning with the opportunity to lead their classmates in planning and participating in school wide liturgies, prayer services, and other celebrations of faith. Students will review what they learned previously in Liturgical Planning, learn about different types and styles of leadership, including Christ-centered servant leadership, and teach and mentor the students who are taking Liturgical Planning for the first time. Through the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, God’s loving Presence comes to us in a sacred, unique, and transformative manner in the Eucharist. The course will invite the Liturgical Leaders to consider how they can share what they have gained and learned from their encounters with God with their classmates, others in our community, and beyond.
